The Buccaneers can’t expect to coast
For Tampa, it just gets even more formidable from here, and now it’s the Buccaneers turn to keep the ship on course and try to repeat.

As anyone who’s ever played or watched sports at any level can tell you, it’s hard enough to win one championship, let alone two in a row. But let’s stop and just think about this little nugget for a minute! The Bucs went all in this year with Brady, Gronk, Fournette, AB and so on. Bucs fans everywhere were excited of having a good chance of making the playoffs.
Could it actually happen? Could the Buccaneers actually be the FIRST team in NFL history (post Super Bowl era) to make it to the Super Bowl in their home stadium? AND maybe even win it??? We all dreamed that unicorn would come trotting into our backyard, and who woulda thunk it? They DO exist!
If this last season is any indication of the impossible being possible, there certainly is optimism that we have as good of a shot as the Chiefs did to win 2 in a row. Bringing back (all) our players doesn’t guarantee anything. But is the attitude and desire going to be there even MORE than it was this year where they realize they are NOT done yet, and haven’t accomplished their full potential?
Brady, hasn’t finished his accomplishments, how could anyone else think they have?
Did TB12 just sign an extension to play through at least 2022 to merely ‘play’ football? Is this ultra competitor merely satisfied with just ONE Super Bowl win in Tampa? Does he think winning 7 is enough?
Brady has already won 2 in a row, but do you think the possibility of a three-peat might be dancing around like sugar plum fairies in his head? To be the all-time GOAT in the annals of history with Michael Jordan?
I don’t think Brady’s work isn’t finished. For him, he’s probably only accomplished a couple goals so far. Love him or hate him, you have to understand his drive to be the very best in all categories is the ultimate challenge for the ultimate competitor.
It’s incessantly hard to navigate the stormy waters of an NFL season to win a second SB in a row with every team gunning for you in every port. But if the Buccaneers can crush the souls of all their adversaries by mustering the energy, the mindset, the desire, and intestinal fortitude to do what it takes and fight to prove that they are not just an anomaly, they can turn this franchise around to be perpetual winners.
